I recently started learning about the ingredients in the products my family uses to clean our house and ourselves. I was pretty shocked to discover the chemical cocktail we use on our skin every day. The biggest surprise was the carcinogenic byproduct in our foaming handwash.
This low tox bath salt recipe is one of my favourites as Its super simple, makes a beautiful present and is a lovely way to take a little bit of time out to relax. Epsom salts are also an awesome way to relax muscles and tension. Not a fan of a bath, no problem! Pop some in a basin and soak your feet.
LOW TOX BATH SALTS
3/4 cup of Epsom Salts
1/4 cup sea salt or pink Himalayan salt
1/4 bicarb soda
10-15 drops of your favourite essential oil
My favourite Doterra essential oil blends:
Lavender & Cedarwoor - calming and helps sleep
Wild Orange & Bergamot - Uplifting
Arborvitae & Wild Orange _ Grounding
1.Mix epsom salts, bicarb soda and essential oil in a bowl.
2. Spoon into your jar or container, alternate between a layer of the salt mix and pink Himalayan salt to create a pretty layered effect.
3. Add dried flowers like lavender or rose petals for decoration. Tie some cute twine round to make a kind gift.
You can use any jar, I like to keep any glass jars from food in our house or Red Dot and Kmart have some pretty and very reasonably jars.
